In the 1960s, Craig Goldenfarb’s mom becomes the first female adjunct professor at Harvard Law School.
To fully appreciate our firm’s history, you have to go back to the 1960s, when Craig Goldenfarb’s mother, Sondra Goldenfarb, a graduate of Harvard Law, becomes the first female adjunct professor, teaching under professor and famous American criminal and civil liberties attorney, Alan Dershowitz.
Sondra met Craig’s father at Harvard, Paul Goldenfarb, while he was studying to become an oncologist. Craig was born in North Carolina, while Paul was completing his medical Residency at Duke University in 1970. The family soon moved to Clearwater, Florida. During his childhood, Craig grew up watching his mother perform in trials, and argue appellate cases in District Courts and the Florida Supreme Court.
In 1995, Craig Goldenfarb graduates from the University of Florida School of Law.
Craig completes his undergraduate studies at Duke University in 1992. In 1995, he earns his law degree from UF College of Law. During this time, Sondra Goldenfarb continues to practice law in Clearwater. Craig meets his wife at UF, and moves to Miami to take his first job as a Plaintiff’s lawyer exclusively practicing personal injury.
Over the next five years, Mr. Goldenfarb gets a crash-course in litigating personal injury law, fighting for his injured clients’ rights, and hones his mastery in managing employees, clients, and opposing counsel.
After a few years as a litigator, Craig Goldenfarb opens his own firm on September 12th, 2002.
Mr. Goldenfarb spent the first few years of his career working at a very large plaintiff’s personal injury law firm in Miami, where he enjoyed a very close relationship with the owner of the firm, who offered to be his personal mentor. That guidance led Mr. Goldenfarb to become a better lawyer to his clients, his firm and profession, and his community.
Before starting The Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb in 2002, Mr. Goldenfarb had gained extensive jury trial experience with cases involving serious motor vehicle injuries, slip and falls, and nursing home abuse.
The Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. begins to grow and gain notoriety in West Palm Beach.
After only a few short years, Mr. Goldenfarb had hired his first few employees, and opened his office on Palm Beach Lakes Blvd in West Palm Beach. During that time, his firm handled a couple of large cases involving the death of a motorcyclist, and another case involving a semi-tractor trailer crash.
With a few major victories against the insurance companies under his belt, more and more clients hired his firm. By the end of 2007, “LOCG” had about ten employees, including his very first employee, Debbie Steigerwald, who is still with the firm to this day.
By 2012, our law firm undergoes dramatic changes.
Growing quickly can have its challenges. Craig realizes that the most important elements of a successful law practice are creating an excellent client experience, and empowering employees to love their job, and love coming to work to serve their clients.
With the hiring of our first few marketing, administration, and client relations managers, LOCG would set itself on a path to prosperity that would generate greater client satisfaction, and genuine engagement from a happy and diverse staff.
Today, The Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb serves our clients, our employees, and our community.
With seven lawyers and more than fifty support staff, our law firm is among the most recognizable personal injury practices in Palm Beach and Martin County. But first and foremost, we serve our clients, who come from all walks of life, and from all over the state of Florida.
Our firm provides charitable support to dozens of community and national organizations. We are proud to have initiatives in the workplace that help our employees grow personally and professionally. Our wide network of referral partners is a testament to our adherence to the strictest standards of ethics and the value we place on hard work and “team-focused” collaboration.
